A bid for new homes with a scenic church view has been lodged with planners.
Some six "contemporary" houses all with detached garages are being earmarked for a vacant field within sight of a flint-flecked church.
The homes planned for Church View in Fleggburgh have been arranged to preserve the view of the church, supporting documents say.
A previous application for five homes was approved three years ago.
One of the four-bedroomed dwellings is being privately designed for the owner.
The "intrinsic value of the church setting" is said to be a critical aspect of the application.
According to the papers the new layout "remains a comfortable use of the site with generous spacing between dwellings and fits in well with the surrounding area.

The plot is described as a field with little ecological or landscape value, and the development is tagged an "appropriate use" of a vacant plot.
St Margaret's Church in Fleggburgh (Burgh St Margaret) is one of 53 fully thatched churches in Norfolk.
